We have designed all Sécra Shoes with substantial orthotic / arch support that a similar amount of support to that found in "off the shelf" orthotics.
With 2.2cm in arch support your feet and body are comfortably aligned easing the strain and stress of the musculoskeletal system. Our highly specialised foam footbed is incredibly comfortable and over time moulds to the shape of your foot.
Getting used to the feel of Sécra Shoes
A little ‘wear in’ time may be required if the arch is not instantly comfortable. Occasionally this is experienced by some people when wearing arch support footwear for the first time, so please do not worry if this is the case for you. With continued use, the footbed will mould to the shape of your foot and your feet will adjust to having the new arch support. We recommend a minimum of 2 weeks wearing in time. This is common when wearing orthotic footwear. With this in mind, we offer a 30 day Comfort Guarantee option, which allows you enough time to properly try out your Sécra Shoes, if they are still not the perfect fit you can return them for a 50% refund.

This is similar to when someone first starts wearing orthotics, in that it is very common that people feel some soreness as their feet adjust to having an arch under them and also due to the changes that occur from the re-correcting of foot posture. When wearing orthotics in for the first time, Podiatrist frequently recommend that you wear them for short periods of time while your feet adjust to the orthotic.
In the case, we suggest to follow a similar principle to what the Podiatrist recommend and to wear them in gradually. E.g - You might like to wear them for an hour or so a day and gradually increase this until your feet become more comfortable with the arch.
It is important to note; a bit of soreness when wearing the footwear in can be the normal experience for some people, however, if you experience actual pain, then you should not push through this! If soreness or pain persists, discontinue wearing the footwear, notify our customer care team and please contact your health care professional.
